    At least they did not call it an Oxford.

    The medallion is only half done, it looks like the guy who was punching accidentally tossed into the done pile.

    Btw, if memory serves me correct, these shoes are probably made in India. The better pieces by C and J, dont have the embossed sole.

    Paul Smith = "sense of humor". Says so in the listing but to my eye... the joke falls flat.

    Yes those shoes are "handmade" in India. I've tried them on, they're pretty damn cool.
